Online class tickets are $9 for members; $11 for nonmembers.

Pre-registration is required—tickets need to be purchased online in advance of each class date. Only 1 ticket needed per device. 

The class link and further instructions will be shared with you after registration is complete. Do not share this link as it is your “ticket” to the class and is unique to you.

We do not offer make-up classes for students who need to miss a class.

We regret that there is no makeup, refund, or rescheduling for classes missed by a child. Refunds are given only if the class is cancelled by the MFA.


There are four separate age groups for the online Artful Adventures Home School program: families and kids ages 4 and up, kids ages 6–10; kids and teens ages 11–13; and teens ages 14–18. Topics and art activities are different for each age group and each online class session.

Students are responsible for providing their own art materials. View the supply lists recommended for each class.

In addition to art materials we also recommend:

  • A laptop or tablet with video and audio capabilities
  • Reliable internet access
  • A quiet work space with plenty of room for setting up your project and materials, good lighting, and a designated place for your laptop or tablet.

The Museum is committed to accessibility for all visitors, both in person and online. Closed captioning is available for all online programs. For more information please contact Artful Adventures by e-mailing
